with the obama administration. there are other people who probably share every bit of mr. perez's views as relates to the use of the law, labor unions, empowering labor unions, fighting against employers who don't want to offer benefits and union access. there's probably somebody who does all of those things, but isn't as controversial as mr. perez, but in choosing mr. perez the president sends a clear message to republicans that says obama 2.0 is still on. >> megyn: we mentioned some of the sound bites in the introduction about mr. perez from somebody who used to work at the doj. that somebody is jay christian adams, he was a do jchj attorne and he worked on the new black panthers case that mr. perez testified about earlier and an openly conservative man. mr. perez is not. so they clearly have an ideological divide between the two of them. he went on the mark levin radio show last week and had the following to say about mr. perez. >> totally lawless. this is a man for whom law is a nuisance. he brings the cases, you might remember, against school districts to allow children to dress in

that this and the answer has to be no. the fact that he got that shows that the president obama administration has carried off this robust war by drones. 4,800 people have been killed by drone strikes under the obama administration. that is an astounding number. i think it is troublesome. the fact that rand paul had to go to such lengths to get that simple answer that is what resonated. i don't think it advanced the drone question that much but that is the beauty of politics in 2013. rand paul is pretty low key? he gave almost a lecture here. he is charismatic but he doesn't a -- >> i'm glad to see a politician stand for something, has core values. in something. stand up for something. on the other hand you have john mccain stuffing his face for president obama. if he had core values and core con visions he did not like what rand paul stood for, go to the filibuster and call him on it. what did he do? he waited until the next day, had a nice party with president obama, fed that fat face of his and then came back to the floor and made an issue about it. i understand that john mccain is a big supporter of t
dropped a bombshell accusation against the obama administration. what he is claiming is now happening to the survivors. that's just ahead. bill: emotional testimony from the wife an american pastor jailed in iran. are her pleas for help falling on deaf ears? she will join us live next for the latest on that. martha: battle of the budgets, two very different ideas here. why house budget committee chairman paul ryan says his plan he believes is the right one. >> i would argue it is the president who has been missing in action on this front. he knows we have a debt crisis coming. all independent experts show us this. and so he hasn't even given us a budget yet. bill: 16 past. new warnings of a many looking debt crisis from house budget committee chair paul ryan arguing that his budget plan is what americans want and is the country's best chance to get a handle on this before it gets too late. here's paul ryan. >> house republicans have been offering budgets every year on this. so, yeah, people have been ducking these tough issues. people are hoping to use these issues to beat the other p
. republicans were particularly incensed that the obama administration kept some of those regulation, held them back until after the election but they're coming now. bill: big, big picture. 35,000 feet. the idea of the law was to insure those who did in the have insurance. to make sure that they are covered. does any of this address that in the end? >> well, i think there is no doubt that people who are today uncovered will have some sort of health coverage. i think the bigger question politically is, the president's promise which he made over and over again if you have health coverage and you like it you will be able to keep it. i don't think anybody is thinking that will be the case. so for the large percentage of americans, the large majority of americans who have health care coverage and who are satisfied with it, i think whether that changes and it changes for the worst is going to determine the political future, maybe the whole future of obamacare. bill: how would you answer that now as we look at this today? >> well it looks to me there are lots of dislocations, price increases, changes
arizona and the obama administration. this time, over the state requirement that those who seek to register to vote provide proof of u.s. citizenship. arizona registration form requires more proof than the simpler federal form. on which applicants check a box, ind kateing u.s. citizen think, sign attesting to that fact and drop it in the mail. arizona argues that it doesn't conflict with the federal form but serves as an additional barrier against voting by non-u.s. citizens. >> if somebody is willing to fraudulently vote that person would be willing to sign fals falsely. so the signature doesn't mean anything. we need evidence that the person is a citizen. >> justice scalia sounded skeptical of the streamlined federal form. "check off, i am a citizen, right? so it's under oath. big deal. if you are willing to violate the voting laws i suppose you're willing to violate the perjury laws." despite issue the arizona officials say they are facing justices like ruth bader ginsberg said there are statutes saying they must accept and use the federal form period. that is the end of it.
and five years, four and a half since the obama administration took over, what's it going to take? >> i think general shinseki is an example of the many public servants at the va and he is a decorated veteran himself. i've dealt with va officials in arkansas and washington here and they want to do the right thing. they may lack the resources and best practices. in some ways the department of veteran affairs is like an insurance company or claims processing company. they don't always have the best and most modern practices and one thing we could do in congress through oversight is help to ensure they get the training and resources they need. i think the will and the desire are certainly there to serve veterans if you look at an organization like walmart, my home state just announced a new initiative where they're going to hire every veteran who applies for a job, as long as they have a clean background check, they want that experience there. the country certainly appreciates veterans and wants to serve them. >> good intentions just don't get them those benefits soon enough. >> right whic
teacher furloughs to longer airport lines to criminal its running free, the obama administration has lied to the american people. they have even closed the white house for public tours. remarkably, the many false claims from the white house had even prompted some in the mainstream media to push back. one of the reasons why the white house thought it could get away with it is because the media has always been in their back pocket. you just have to look at all the obama scandals, with the latest being the tragedy where four brave americans died -- were murdered in benghazi, to see the media's complacency. the obama administration has not been forthcoming with information on benghazi, and congress has failed in its oversight responsibilities. citizens united recently launched a campaign calling on members of congress to create a select committee to investigate fully the benghazi tragedy. it has been over 30 years since jimmy carter's presidency that a united states ambassador has been killed overseas. now six months after benghazi, there are more questions than answers. it is vitally importa
on the obama administration for declining to testify at a hearing focusing on the american pastor jailed in iran. today's hearing is part of a larger meeting to discuss the plight of religious minorities in that country. elizabeth prann is live in washington with more. elizabeth, let's talk about timing. why is this hearing taking place now? >> reporter: there is certainly growing international spotlight on the human rights crisis in iran. the state department's absence was noted immediately during a capitol hill commission hearing focusing on the imprisoned american pastor, saeed abedini. >> one notable absence, is unfortunately is the u.s. department of state. i was amazed a hearing which was called to highlight the plight of religious minorities in iran, not to mention the imprisonment of one of our own very own american citizens was not deemed important enough to the department. >> there is a fundamental problem for saeed abedini's case. i'm a litigator. i spend most of my time. you look where is the problem the problem in his case is the state department is awol. they are absent wit
here. the upgrades originally proposed by the bush administration were halted when president obama took office. while some are critical of the president for this, others say that it wasn't an appropriate time. listen. >> we didn't think we needed to take a lot seriously before 9/11 and we learned afterwards we did. this young korean dictator is just like his father and grandfather before him, erattic and sporadic and the regime is unpredictable. >> reporter: a white house official says that north korea advanced the missile capability in the last six to eight months and the plan is to have in place by 2017. >> thank you, a concern after senator lindsey graham drops a bombshell about the benghazi investigation. and graham accused the obama administration of telling survivors of that attack against the u.s. consulate in libya to keep quiet. up u not heard from any of the people rescued that fateful day and lawmakers say they have little information about them. the white house is denying pressuring them to keep silent and graham says he's finally made contact with some survivors and that t
anything about what happened at the white house. the philosophy of the obama administration is that it will be too late. now is the opportunity that we will hear from our panelists. each of us will present a different perspective on the panel about what happened that night. then i will have some q&a with them. even if we cannot answer the questions, perhaps, we can help people understand what are the right questions so that someday whether it be a presidential candidate or a cnn moderator or centers dining with the president, maybe somebody can come up with the right questions to ask about benghazi and hope and pray that someday we will get the proper answers. let me turn the time over to our panelists to make their remarks. [indiscernible] >> thank you very much congressman. let me make a stock appraisal of what we learn from benghazi and ask you to remember the commercials during the 2008 campaign about the :00 a.m. phone call. the lesson is that that 3:00 a.m. went to voicemail. it is a manifestation of the fact that we have a president who takes responsibility for only o
three times higher in the obama administration. the number of new establishments, entrepreneurial activity, for the year-ending march 2010 --march, 2010, was lower than any other year since the series began. since they began keeping record, mr. speaker. in 2010 under this administration's stimulus policies, entrepreneurial activity was at the lowest level in america since we began keeping records. i don't mean at the lowest level of people succeeding. i mean the lowest level of people trying. the lowest level of people trying, mr. speaker. what does it mean about us? what does it mean about our future when we have beaten the enthusiasm to try out of our people? frightened it out of our people. mr. speaker, that's not just a department of labor report. we talk a lot about that. what is it that the guys down at the agencies are producing, those technical reports. ill a tell you what they are producing, i'll tell you the impact it's had. the federal register, mr. speaker, i don't he know if you picked up a copy since you have been here. the federal register measures all the new regul

that night that according to lindsay graham who told fox news the obama administration is being unusually tight lipped compared to other events. >> you got to remember this administration leaked every detail of the bin laden raid. though telled old us about seal 6. they are refuse to go give us the identity and allowing congress to be interviewed. >> four died in the terror attack. shawn smith and former navy seal glen daughterty and tyrone woods and ambassador chris stevens. >> information begins to emerge as we learn the security agents and one state department contractor who were among the injured may be being asked not to talk. lindsay graham tells fox news the injured survivors may have been quote told to be quiet. he says the house should investigate. >> i am going to hold up the business of the senate until they get the survivors on record. i have talked to a couple. the story is chilling they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> members the house intelligence committee says it's still too early to say whether or not they will investigate. >> s
. obama administration officials telling fox news the rogue nation threat is evolving, that is their word. just yesterday president obama shed new light on the u.s. response in an interview with an israeli tv station. >> north korea is so isolated. it is so dysfunctional in some ways it was harder to apply pressure on them. >> gregg: remember, this is the same nation that has spent more than $3 billion on its missile and nuclear programs according to south korean estimates while millions of men, women and children are starving. so what do we expect the pentagon to be announcing here. >> reporter: we expect them to increase the intercepteders in california and alaska which the bush administration had planned to do. this was the message earlier this week at the pentagon on tuesday. >> between our allies and remains for any contingency and we stand ready to protect u.s. and south korean interests. the important message that this government has sent to north korea is that the need change it's rhetoric and take the temperature down. >> reporter: but just eight days ago the white house spokesma
in the obama administration went on offense. >> to say we have no reason to believe the allegations represent anything more than the regime's continued attempt to discredit the legitimate opposition and distract from its own atrocities committed against the syrian people. >> we would warn the regime making these charges, any kind of pretext or cover. for its use of chemical weapons. >> that wasn't the first such warning from the white house. >> red line for us is we start seeing chemical weapons moved around or utilized. >> late today, carl levin, democrat of michigan and chairman of the senate armed services committee told foreignpolicy.com josh rogan he wants to see the u.s. establish no fly zone over syria. others want to see u.s. troops on the ground in syria, possibly in conjunction with nato or other allied forces to secure the stockpiles of chemical weapons. bret? >> bret: james rosen live on the north lawn. thank you. president obama leaves in an hour-and-a-half on his second mideast trip as commander-in-chief. it will include his first such visit to israel. chief white house correspo
is raising serious questions about the obama administration's handling of the benghazi terror attacks and the aftermath. senator lindsey graham accuses the white house of telling injured survivers of those attacks to quote, be quite and not share their stories. now he's willing to do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of this happen. >> i'm going to hold up the pweufs the senate until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple. their story is chilling. they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. jon: let's talk about it with bret baier the anchor of special report and a guy who has done a great deal of reporting on what happened in the benghazi situation. there are 33 survivors of the attacks who were evacuated from the diplomatic facilities there, bret? >> reporter: yes, jon, a lot of them fall into the cia category and probably will not be heard from, undercover agents. you do have at least four state department officials, state department security and a contractor who were injured in the attack, and you have people like senator grah
for welfare be waived? the house says no. lawmakers passed a bill preventing the obama administration from waiving the work requirement. last summer the obama administration said it would grant waivers to some of the rules but not one state applied. is that an i.e.d. in your pocket? the t.s.a. wouldn't know. agents at newark airport completely outmatched by an undercover fed who stuck an i.e.d. in his pants and slipped past two security check points. even worse, the t.s.a. excuse now, a member of the t.s.a. blog team says it's just too darned hard for agents to find bombs. >>steve: that says it all. >>alisyn: they're busy frisking grandmothers. >>steve: every one of them. >>brian: why can't you straighten this out? it's right by your house. can you just go in there -- >>steve: every time we go through, we pretty much get strip searched. they figure my wife is clearly a terrorist. the top story, the fact that we have a new pope in addition to a pope emeritus. it was interesting, when the news came out, the president of the united states was in front of house republicans, and he said -- the
alaska is pleased that putting his home state on the map. he says the obama administration should have known sooner. >> they misdiagnosed what was happening in the region in terms of what heavily sanctioned country determined to acquire these capabilities could do. one silver lining at this point is perhaps missile defense has bipartisan support. >> reporter: earlier reaction shows it's bipartisan but there are serious budget issues in washington these days. >> no doubt about that. thank you very much. it's important to keep in mind, north korea spends an enormous amount of the budget on its military while two-thirds of the country has trouble finding food to eat. the report claims that children have been caused stunted growth. just 50 years ago, south korea was as poor as the north but five decades after it embraced democracy the south one of the most prosperous nations on earth. >>> new gun control bills could soon become law in where movie theater massacre happened. they set a limit of 15 rounds per magazine. they expect colorado's governor to sign the law back in two weeks. back in
. and leaked details about the osama bin laden raid apparently not a problem for the obama administration, the critics say, but letting lawmakers talk to survivors of the benghazi terror attack? that's a problem according to republican senator lindsey graham, he's vowing to do whatever is necessary to get answers. >> until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple and their story is chilling. they're scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> alisyn: graham says the house should subpoena the administration if needed. the white house denies pressuring survivors to stay silent. he carried out a terrorist attack on a flight to hawaii. in three days, rasheed is released from president and authorities say he's being released because he cooperated on other terrorist. and hundreds of people stepping up to help some oregon girl scouts who fell victim to a hoax. they thought a local company ordered $25,000 worth of cookies and turned out to be fake and left them with too many boxes of cookies and not enough money for the camp. after hearing the story, peop
leadership. >> also i should point out this network was the network that was blasted by the obama administration for our early reporting on benghazi and what we uncovered in the burned out wreckage in benghazi. so the idea that somehow we are not talking about benghazi is b a surd. we want to call out politicians when they say things that are untrue. with with congresswoman bachmann it's a double edged sword. she fund raises off this stuff. >> we can be transparent with viewers. we had a discussion about this. we know the more oxygen we give it the more she'll raise money off of it. this is one example of a fund-raising notice she sends out. she's one of the most active fund raising e-mail lists. is he sends out five alarm notices, sometimes more than one a day warning they have to contribute or her campaign will fall under the weight of democrats and the liberal media. this was on a different subject. i wouldn't be surprise fd she use this is report and another tomorrow. we're doing our job. >> again, the invitation stands. she can just sit. e she doesn't have to run. we'll talk
that was blasted by the obama administration for our early reporting on benghazi and what we uncovered in the burned out wreckage in benghazi. so the idea that somehow we are not talking about bengahzi is just absurd. we do struggle in situations like this, because we want to call out politicians when they say things that are flat out untrue. with with congresswoman bachmann it's a double edged sword. she fund raises off this stuff. >> we can be transparent with viewers. your producers and us, we had a real discussion about this today because we know the more oxygen we give this the more bachma bachmann will raise money off of this. this is one example of a fund-raising notice she sends out. she's one of the most active fund raising e-mail lists. she sends out five-alarm notices to supporters, sometimes more than one e-mail a day warning that they have to contribute or her campaign will fall under the weight of democrats and the liberal media. that's what this one today said. this was on a different subject. i wouldn't be surprise fd she uses this program, this report and another one t
: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're
. but by then the philosophy of the obama administration is that it's going to be too late. so now is the opportunity that we are going to be hearing from our panelists and each of us will present a little bit of a different perspective on the panel about what happened that night and then i'll have some q&a interaction with them and we'll see if even if we cannot answer the questions for you, perhaps we can help people to understand what are the right questions so that some day wlrks it be a presidential candidate or a cnn moderator or senators having dinner with the president, maybe somebody can come up with the right questions to ask about benghazi and then hope and pray that some day we will get the proper answers. let me turn the time over to our panelists to let them make their remarks. roger. >> thank you very much congressman. please hold your applause. thank you very much. i have somebody paying attention up front. let me begin by making a very stark appraisal by what we learned from benghazi. and i just ask you to remember the famous commercials during the 2008 campaign about the 3:00 a.m. phone cal
's office politics, michael isikoff, he's been on the front lines reporting on the obama administration's controversial drone policy. i asked him about the uproar and the catalyst for the recent scrutiny. >> what we did was get ahold of the justice department white paper which laid out the legal reasoning that would justify the use of lethal force, drone strikes, although it doesn't mention drone strikes, against american citizens. and while the administration officials had given a couple speeches on the subject, the white paper filled out some of the blanks in those speeches and gave a fuller explanation of the legal reasoning, and in some ways when i think significantly went beyond what had been stated publicly. particularly, and this is relevant very much to the discussion of the iraq war, what it called -- what it described as a, quote, broader concept of imminence. the first test as to whether or not a president can use lethal force to kill an american citizen is does that citizen, is he engaged in activity that poses an imminent threat to american citizens? that's the first test.
carolina senator lindsey graham, who told fox news the obama administration is being unusually tight-lipped compared to other international events. >> and remember, this administration leaked every detail of the bin laden raid and told about the pakistani doctor who helped who is now in jail and told us about seal team six. they're refusing to give us the identity of the survivors and allowing them to come to congress to be interviewed. >> harris: you may remember, four americans died in an asack, ambassador stevens, sean smith, gloenn doherty and tyrone woods. >> reporter: harris, details about the benghazi terror attacks begin to emerge as we learn the three diplomatic security agents and among the injured may be asked not to talk. republican senator lindsey graham tells fox news the injured may have been told to keep quiet. >> i'm going to hold this up in the senate until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple and their story is chilling. they're scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> reporter: the ranking member of the house inte

administration, usually at the end but in this case at the beginning is the israeli palestinian conflict, president obama you mention in your book, his first call was -- as president was to abbas, the head of the palestinian authority. how did that get derailed? seems like it's no longer -- maybe it's going to become a front burner issue but for at least three years, the presidency went to the back burner. what happened there? >> guest: several things. it wasn't for lack of trying on the part of the administration. you can sum it up by saying, expectations were raised way too high by the president, by the administration. there was a belief that perhaps there was a window of opportunity that could be used to advance the talks. but there was a misreading in the united states about what had changed on the ground in and are in the palestinian territories, and where each of the players was, netanyahu, and abbas. and there is often the sense that if you're the american president, you can make anything move, and then you bump against reality, and it's not enough to be -- the president changed.

to be killed in the line of duty since 1979. on november 14th, president obama says that his administration had provided all information regarding, quote, what happened in benghazi, still, we search for answers. we are also getting new reports today that a federal grand jury is investigating a u.s. senator, namely democrat robert menendez, as questions grow over what prosecutors are looking for in this probe. the democrat from new jersey caught up in a controversy involving his relationship with the wealthy friend in miami, florida. an eye doctor who made some hefty donations to senator menendez and the democratic party in the last election cycle. doug burns is a former federal prosecutor. now we have been told that a federal grand jury is investigating the senator? >> yes, and you have to remember, there's two types of grand juries, one is in investigating and the other is an indicting one. that's an important distinction because the point is in my view, this is an investigating one. they've subpoenaed certain documents and looking into, megyn, whether or not the senator took actions on behalf
sequestration gave the obama administration a political reason to release deportable aliens. surely otherle budgetary considerations could have come first such as cutting conferences or detailees or travel. releasing illegal immigrants ves them little incentive to report themselves. many will become fugitives. further more, the director has indicated that i.c.e. has had to reapprehend four out of the 10 of the illegal immigrant for more severe crimes. to make matters worse, many of these individuals released lack the money, family, support, and the ability to get a job. not just because they are present in violation of the law but because they have a criminal record. this is a ultimately, the nonsensical action demonstrates the inability and a lack of desire on behalf of the administration to enforce the law, even against illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. to make matters worse, they undermine the goodwill necessary to develop a common sense, step- by-step approach to improving our immigration laws. pleasureime, it is my to recognize the ranking member of the committee, the gen
] and what have we seen from the obama administration? the obama administration is sending the worst signal to the ayatollahs, at a most critical time. we talk, they enrich. they don't take us seriously. and this leading from behind strategy, it isn't working. think about the message that we are sending. in iraq, the president ignores the advice of his commanders, his own commanders, and rushed to the exit. and what was the result? al qaeda is making a comeback in iraq. and iran has become an important player in iraq. in syria, we sat on the sidelines while over 70,000 syrians were slaughtered. seeding our policy to the vetoes of the russians and the chinese and the united nations to a bunch of united nations bureaucrats. [booing] and in afghanistan, the president has undercut his commanders time and time again. in libya, the administration again lead from behind, and never took steps to secure gadhafi's weapons stash. and do you know where those weapons are now? they are in the hands of islamic radicals in mali, egypt, and syria, used by terrorists to harm us and our allies. and this admin
